IT was very heartening to see a fellow Pensby resident objecting to the proposed closure of the Pensby Surgery in Pensby Road ("Nonsense and Hypocrisy", Globe, January 3).

If more Pensby residents don’t object soon, they will lose their friendly and caring surgery.

I suspect most people would not object to improving the facilities at Heswall, but if there was desire amongst the practice partners to invest a modest financial sum in Pensby, the facility could be brought to a modern standard for GP consultations and nursing appointments.

Surely it is better for a few doctors to attend a few hundred patients at Pensby, rather than a few hundred patients having to trek up to Heswall to see a doctor.
